Sweeney Todd – Davie McPhail

Davie is a magical tyer and I always love to watch this master at work. This is a great salmon / steelhead pattern tied up on one of Alec Jackson’s steelhead irons, a nice hook to tie on. I’ve got a couple tied up for the fall to try out on the great lakes tribs. Let’s see them pass this one up. If you don’t have the Bug Bond product Davie uses, you could also use Tuffleye, Clear Goo or knotsense for this application.

Hook: Alec Jackson Steelhead
Thread: Hot pink UTC 140
Rib: Silver Oval tinsel
Body: Black floss rear 2/3, pink Globrite floss (set with bug bond resin) 1/3
Wing: Black dyed sliver fox with grizzly hackle lateral lines (cheek)

Eye: Stick on eye
Head: Uni 8/0 black, Epoxy or light set resin
